Paediatric Palliative Care Symptom Control Manual
This is edition 9.5 (2016) of the Basic Symptom Control in Paediatric Palliative Care: The Rainbow Children's Hospice Guidelines. These were developed in association with Together for Short Lives, providing doctors and nursing staff with an “all in one” reference tool for symptom management and children’s palliative care medicines.
The guide is set out as an A-Z of symptoms that could occur when caring for a child with palliative care needs and how to approach them. It also includes a comprehensive prescribing formulary, adapted from the third edition of the Association of Paediatric Palliative Medicine’s master formulary, to support those prescribing in children’s palliative medicine.
